And here is where we could move on to another contestant and talk to him or her about stuff that happened on the show. Instead, Probst turns back to Chase and talks to him about his life outside of the show and his music career even though the show tried to claim he was a pro race car jackman or whatever. Probst asks if being on the show has helped or hurt his burgeoning career, and Chase says probably neither one. He has to be able to sing and write good music, even though his chosen genre is country so that's impossible. Sorry, country music fans! I don't get it. Chase moved to Nashville and says he's ready to fight his way to the top of the country music charts. Probst grabs a guitar and demands that Chase play for us and waste a few more minutes of time. Everyone claps along with Chase except for Dan and Shannon. Ha! Dan is from Brooklyn, New York, and so doesn't understand this thing called country music, while Shannon hates everyone. Also, we have to look at Rupert in the audience while Chase is playing, which makes me hate it that much more.
Jimmy Johnson was voted out third but he's famous, so we're going to waste more time on him. A montage of his brief and unremarkable time on the show greets us after the break, and Probst asks Jimmy Johnson what makes Survivor so much tougher than football. Jimmy Johnson says football practice is hard, but you get plenty of food and water and you can go home to your nice, soft bed. Not so in Survivor. Probst asks why a 67-year-old guy with plenty of fame and money would do something like this. Jimmy Johnson says he's always been a huge fan of the show and he's been trying to get on it for a while, which should have been easy since he was in good enough with the people behind the scenes to attend various season finale parties, but then the medical team found two blocked arteries during the testing process. He had those fixed, lost weight, and got healthy enough to be able to be on the show. Thus, he claims, Survivor saved his life.
That's a nice story and really should be the end of Jimmy Johnson, but no. Probst runs into the audience to talk to a "buddy" of Jimmy Johnson's he brought to the show with him. Yes, it's Terry Fucking Bradshaw, sitting in the audience with Boston Rob, Cirie, some bored-looking child, and Li'l Russell, who I will apparently be forced to see every season whether he's in the cast or not. Probst asks Bradshaw what he thought when he heard that Jimmy Johnson was doing this show, like, who cares what Bradshaw thought? There are 15 people who were on the show this season up there we haven't heard from yet! While Probst stares up at Bradshaw lovingly, he says he was worried about Jimmy Johnson being so old and was glad he was voted out before he could "hurt himself." Probst says that Jimmy Johnson did really well for someone so old who didn't need the money and thus didn't have the "same drive" to stay in the game. Meanwhile, Dan is sitting there just four years younger than Jimmy Johnson and apparently just as rich wondering why he's not getting any credit for staying in the game three times as long as Jimmy Johnson did. I don't know, Dan. I don't know.
